This is how this specific work and the series "Duration" was described during her solo exhibition at Connersmith in Washington DC:
"Friberg’s series of photographs, "Duration" (2012-13) pictorializes the physical and emotional effects of technology. Posing figures in historic interiors, the artist emphasizes how portable electronic devices shape our postures and structure our physical interactions with one another. Her images suggest that, as we increase our ability to communicate globally and escape into virtual worlds, our capacity to interact with one another face to face erodes. Staging adults and children in settings redolent of faded splendor, Friberg underscores the distinction between a new generation, who is growing up entirely immersed in the digital age, and an older generation who, in their youth, experienced more direct forms of personal interaction. She visualizes the disconnect between the old and new ways of communicating in the distances that separate the children from the adults, as well as in the contrast between the currency of the technological devices and the ambience of the antiquated spaces their users occupy."
